My jewelry (though newly made with pearls and crystals) has as it's centerpiece, an antique brooch which I had a custom designer convert into a necklace. Since I picked up this little beauty at a vintage swap meet near my house for only $25.00, it's the perfect something old. I also have my bracelet which is made from a clip on earring I bought at the same vintage swap meet.
My Maggie Sottero SaBelle gown is obviously my something new. Though I could also go with the new red Me Too shoes I bought with Mr Fix It on clearance at Nordstom's to fulfill this little part of the tradition.
This is Melody. She is one of the girls that is in a bible study I have been leading for about 5 years now. I have known her since high school and she is now married (1 1/2 years ago) and just got accepted to USC's med school program. I am so proud of her. But I am even more honored that she is letting me borrow that beautiful veil as my something borrowed on the wedding day. It's simple and a good length for my gown. I will only wear it for the ceremony and maybe a few photos.
I don't have a photo of this item, but I will have a blue brooch that was a piece of Mr Fix It's mothers costume jewelry attached to my bouquet. She passed away long before Mr Fix It and I met when he was in his 30's. I know he really misses her. So when we were going through some old boxes at his place and he came across a bunch of her old jewelry and asked if I wanted any of it, I immediately saw the brooch and told him that I would be using this somehow on our wedding day :)
So let's hear it girls...are you willing to share your 'somethings' from your big day?
